Fishing Report

Lake Charlie Capps - 11/30/2023 12:13:27 PM
Species Detail
Bass Much like us, bass are trying to escape the hot weather and find cooler water. Try fishing parallel to the bank. Fishing near the cattails along the dam is a good spot. Try using spinner baits, crankbaits, or soft plastics.
Crappie Crappie fishing is slow right now at the lake. Try fishing in the deeper areas of the lake near the earthen piers on the west side. Using jigs or minnows is a good choice.
Bream Bream activity has been pretty good since warmer temperatures have arrived. Fish near the piers and driftwood along the banks using red worms and crickets.
Catfish There are no reports of catfishing at this time.
